The hotel is located right on the edge of the sea on the northwest coast of Nosy Be, facing the island of Orchids - Nosy Sakatia.

The toilets are separate. 4 rooms are connecting. Room service is available until 10:30 PM.

    Overview 8.20 /10

    Open in 2000 and expanded in 2004, the Vanila hotel welcomes you in a small chalet where it offers you a welcoming drink. Further on, the bungalows and the restaurants are spread out in numerous wooden buildings with thatched roofs, also chalet-style. The hotel boasts two restaurants, two pools - including one formed of three round basins (one is a kid's pool) facing the restaurant, and the other is located in the front of another restaurant. The hotel has 4 bars including two beside each pool, that offer famous Del Sol cocktails at sunset. The hotel also offers a traditional massage room, a space for excursions, Internet access, a baby-sitting service, board games, billiards, a library, a video library and a kids garden. Animators organise musical evenings, local embroidery, painting and sculpture exhibitions.

    Food and drink 7.70 /10

    The hotel offers two restaurants. The Parfum Vanille and the Grill Del Sol are both managed by a French chef. The cuisine is delicious. The Parfum Vanille (capacity of 80 guests) and the main restaurant where breakfasts and dinners are served buffet-style or various and exotic menus. The cuisine is based on local products (fish, sea fruits, spicies, fruits and tropical vegetables) in a warm musical ambiance, with musicians that play vahila (an instrument with local strings) and the guitar. The Grill Del Sol (40 guests) is the annex restaurant at the edge of the sea beside the second pool. It is open all day to serve light lunches (salads and grills) and offers a gastronomic menu in the evening (duck filet, rock lobsters, gambas, foie gras...). Various themed activities are presented every day until early evening, the atmosphere at dinner time is muffled.

    Beach 7.20 /10

    The beach is like most of the beaches in Madagascar. It is not large and the sand is not that great. There are no beach chairs. However, it is nice to walk here or to have a good bathe in the sea. Still, the water is nice.

    To know

    The hotel accepts blue visa credit cards, euros and traveller's checks.

      This is a great hotel for those who love the sea, allowing you to admire it from morning to night from the rooms, the restaurant and the swimming pool!

      Although opened in October 2007 and not yet completely finished, the Ampasikely is a simple hotel located right on the seafront and with an attractive swimming pool. There is no timetable, no fuss here - you are on holiday and you do as you please! A little too much sometimes.

      Nature, sport, comfort and calm are the watchwords of this little hotel, which consists of bungalows in the middle of a luxuriant garden in front of an unspoilt beach. Nothing bothers you here (there are no children under 15), and you can do what you like when you like. Quad-biking and diving are the main activities on offer, but you will be happy whatever you like, provided you come with a convivial and relaxed attitude.

      If diving is your passion and you couldn't imagine spending a single day of your holiday without getting your head under the water, this is the place for you. Ideally located on a heavenly beach, these small bungalows offer varying levels of comfort at varying prices. Prices can be twice as much depending on whether you have cold water or hot water. It's a shame they don't offer a mid-priced room with warm water!
